Senior Program Officer
Founder of the Wikipedia Library
The Wikimedia Foundation
The Wikipedia Library is a novel project that allows active Wikipedia editors to gain access to the vital reliable sources that they need to do their work. In support of this mission, the project has created alliances with libraries and publishers. Learn how libraries are working to make their collections more visible on the world’s largest free encyclopedia, and find out what steps your library can take to gain visibility on this important reference site. Hear examples of how libraries are engaging with Wikipedia: virtually hosting an editor, undertaking usage research and using OCLC’s knowledge base API and a Wikipedia script. Current library partners for this project include: Rutgers University, Montana State University, George Washington University, and the University of California, Riverside.
